Brush Your Teeth

Perhaps one of the least known tips for preventing heart failure, consistent teeth brushing (twice a day, with dentist visits every six months) can prevent heart disease. Researchers found that people who reported less frequent brushing had a 70% higher risk for heart failure, linking positive chemical markers of inflammation in the blood. The overall risk of heart disease as it's related to dental hygiene is still relatively low.
